St Luke’s Hospice
In the first place, we’re very proud to support one of Devon’s best-loved charities, St Luke’s Hospice. Moreover, through working with St Luke’s as a sponsor, we know they face the annual challenge of raising millions of pounds. In fact, this is the main way they fund their highly respected end of life care services.
Needless to say, we were keen to support them again when they needed to replace their existing gas boilers and improve heating efficiency across their main site.
Specifically, the existing gas boilers at St Luke’s Hospice were installed when the original building was constructed in 1988. All in all, successive extensions and additions over the years meant not only did the gas boilers require updating, but also the entire plant room equipment.
- The existing gas boilers were inefficient. The flue stacks continuously vented heat because of poor hydraulic design and controls
- The Building Management System was outdated, and some controls were no longer operational
- Maintenance costs for the existing gas boilers were starting to escalate as the boilers approached the end of their service life
It’s important to realise that due to continual operation of the care facility, the installation timescale was very tight. In particular, minimal disruption to patients was therefore essential.
